just heard about teachmeet – a tool where teachers with ICT responsibilities in schools come together in a flashmob (not actually as scary as it might sound, just a bit less formal than a formal meeting…) at a volunteered school and volunteers contribute 10 min long presentations or 3min short presentations about things that have worked (or not) in their schools. They have to have tried and succeeded (or failed) but at least tried.
All attendees can’t be selling things, or be getting gain for themselves – they’re just try to spread good practice and sponge off their colleagues!
It’s a wiki where people contribute their venue and co-0rdinate contributions, and there’s also a google map which shows locations.
wonder if it could work for librarians in Cambridge and beyond??
